Participants will tour The Commodore, a 20-story, 423-unit apartment building that is primarily new construction yet also incorporates facades of two historically important buildings. The project is pursuing LEED Platinum and is situated adjacent to the Arlington Virginia’s Courthouse Complex. It will be the tallest building in the area capturing sweeping views from downtown DC to the National Monument, National Cathedral, Tysons Corner, Arlington Cemetery and the Pentagon via the occupied roof deck. This architect-led tour will do a deep-dive into how the building systems had to be designed and constructed to meet the challenges of the metro tunnels running directly underneath the development’s 3-story, below-grade parking area and ground floor retail spaces. In addition, they will experience how lower floors of residential buildings can be designed to provide over 33,000 sf of amenity space for the residents including outdoor terraces and a pool.

PPE will be required, including: Hard hat, sturdy boots, safety vests and googles.
Tour Waiver Form is required for participation.
